CAMP INVENTION 2018
National Inventors Hall of Fame
In 2018, Camp Invention-a nationally
recognized nonprofit event that runs for one
week during the summer-will focus on four
activities. These include creating a small selfdriving robot that senses changes in light and
diagnosing malfunctioning robotic dogs at
fictional animal shelters. Each camper will bring
home two personalized robots.

INSPIRE SCIENCE
McGraw-Hill Education
This K5 online learning platform features audio
flashcards, text highlighting tools and interactive
pictures with informational pop-ups. Simulators,
such as Newton's Cradle, let students lift spheres
and drop them at specific angles. The energy of the
spheres can then be mapped on a graph. Inspire
Science also includes songs, games, videos and
tools for teachers.

THE K-2 ADVANTAGE
Science4us
Science4us' K2 inquiry-based programs cover
physical science, life science, and earth and
space science with 28 modules of material.
Kindergarteners experiment with tools,
investigate plants and animals, and sort objects
based on physical properties. First-graders
examine the characteristics of living things and
learn how everyday objects function in daily life.
Second-graders study weather, magnetism and
animal interactions.

LAYING THE FOUNDATION
The National Math and Science Initiative
Laying the Foundation provides hands-on
development for teachers based on subject, grade
level and pedagogy. The multiday, summertime
training puts teachers in the role of students in
grades 3 through 12. Science lessons include
building whirligigs and calculating their descents,
exploring natural selection by simulating the
survivability of rabbits that have different mutations,
and investigating the space between a pair of
electrodes connected to direct current.

ACELLUS STEM ROBOTIC LABS
Acellus Learning System by International
Academy of Science
These simulated courses are designed for
special ed students. The coding course, for
example, gives step-by-step video instruction
for programming an actual or simulated Cellus
Bot robot. Students "code" with small blocks
that snap together, which allows them to
focus on the fundamental principles of coding
without having to master difficult programming
languages. The video console and the Cellus Bot
provide immediate feedback on student work.

STEMSCOPES DIVE-IN ENGINEERING
CURRICULUM
Accelerate Learning
The STEMscopes online engineering curriculum
comes with kits so students in grades 3 through 8
can build hovercrafts, robot arms and telescopes.
Learners can take apart and examine working
prototypes and then make their own version. In
analyzing their creations, they can brainstorm ways
to make improvements-or apply their solution to
a new problem. The curriculum includes teacher
guides with instructions, rubrics and toolkits.

LEARN TO CODE CURRICULUM
Wonder Workshop
This K5 curriculum-which aligns to 2017 Computer Science Teachers Association standards-teaches
students six coding concepts: sequences, loops, events, conditionals, functions and variables. It comes with
two smart robots, Dash and Dot. Dash is voice-controlled and can dance, sing and navigate around obstacles.
Dot can be coded to act as various things-such as Dash's remote control. Also included: five apps and 72
cards that present various challenges, such as helping Dash collect eggs that have fallen out of a bird's nest.
